San Rocco Oratory

In Baroque style, the oratory of San Rocco dates back to the early 1600s and was probably part of a larger religious complex. The origin of the name is easy to derive, observing the apse in which you can admire a seventeenth-century painting depicting San Rocco, flanked by two young Gonzaga princes, who probably commissioned the work. Again on the apse visitors can admire the painting of Our Lady of Pilar, evidence of contacts between the Gonzaga and Spanish rulers, and a Crucifix carved in wood acquired around 1500. The wooden fittings are rich (the splendid choir with panels depicting saints, the altar in gilded wood and painted panels).
